Golden Dawn spokesman asks for judges to be removed from probe

Golden Dawn spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris (photo) made an official request on Tuesday for the two magistrates handling a judicial probe into the far-right party to be removed from their positions.

Kasidiaris argues that Ioanna Klapa and Maria Dimitropoulou have shown that they are not impartial.

Among the arguments made by Golden Dawn is that Klapa is married to a founding member of Democratic Left (DIMAR) and had failed to declare this to her superiors.

In his document, Kasidiaris says DIMAR sees Golden Dawn as its “ideological enemy.”

The neo-Nazi party also claims that the two prosecutors have proved incapable of preventing evidence from being leaked to the media and that this is prejudicing the trial.

“The judicial probe against Golden Dawn has been staged in the worst possible way and is the most terrible scheming that the Greek people have seen in the last 50 years,” Kasidiaris said in his statement.
